Meet the Buyer will return in 2020 with a series of free events that will bring together senior project and contract managers from the state government and create an opportunity for local businesses to meet key staff with the responsibility for the design of projects, sourcing business solutions plus purchasing goods and services.

Supply to Gov Workshops
One of the roles of the Industry Advocate is to build the capability and capacity of businesses based in South Australia to participate in government contracts. To help achieve this, the Industry Advocate runs Supply to Gov workshops.
As a potential supplier to the government you need to know who to contact, importantly, how to find business opportunities to effectively compete as well as understanding the rules and processes.
If you are interested in working with the State Government, attending a Supply to Gov workshop is a great place to start, as it covers;
- how the government market works,
- knowing your customer,
- understanding the process,
- finding opportunities,
- building relationships, and
- tendering to win.
